Annnnd the crowd goes WILD!!!
Lana Del Rey totally ROCKED her show in Rome over the weekend, especially when she gifted them with the sparkling gem of her first live Dark Paradise performance.
As you can tell in the video (below), basically everyone with a recording device was holding that thing up in the air as high as possible. And basically everyone with vocal cords was singing at the top of their lungs.
We would’ve been too, if we were there!!
Of course Lana Del Rey, being the courteous person she is, let the crowd sing parts of the song for her.
If this gurl continues in the direction she’s been headed, she’ll be gracing our radios for a long time to come!
Ch-ch-check it ouuttt …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Ummm remember when people used to HATE on Lana Del Rey for her live performances???
Definitely no longer a valid argument against the gal, because she performed the song Young & Beautiful from The Great Gatsby soundtrack live for the FIRST TIME last night, and there is NOTHING to hate about it.
The performance was hauntingly beautiful, and her audience was clearly captivated the entire time. Like, it gives us the shivers every time we watch.
Ch-ch-check it out! (above)
And check out some of her concert stills! (below)
There's no better way to communicate the tone of your movie than with the right music- and no one knows that better than Baz Luhrmann!
His epic Romeo + Juliet soundtrack went TRIPLE PLATINUM! And it sounds like The Great Gatsby might be following in the young lovers' footsteps!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see and hear the extended TV spot that gives us a feel for the story through the haunting music of Lana Del Rey!
Never did something so Young And Beautiful make us want to cry so much!
Beyoncé & Andre 3000! Lana Del Rey! Jay-Z & Kanye West!
And now The xx!!!
Holy guacamole, The Great Gatsby is pushing out one of the most epic soundtracks EVER!
This fab new track is haunting, melodramatic, grandiose yet minimal — it's everything we've come to expect from The xx!
Ch-ch-check out Together (above)!
Even if we weren't exceptionally excited to watch Baz Luhrmann work his magic with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire, we'd see the flick for the magnificent new music alone!!
Jay Gatsby's quest for Daisy begins May 10th and we cannot wait!!!
If you've ever read the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, you know Jay Gatsby has 99 problems, but $100 bills aren't one!
Jay-Z, another self-made aristocrat, finds himself both not only producing the so-far-so-epic soundtrack of The Great Gatsby, but contributing a brand new sing as well!
Ch-ch-check out a mind-blowing clip from his fabulously fresh new rap song, $100 Bill (above)!!
The amazeballz soundtrack to the Baz Luhrmann film also includes cuts from Lana Del Rey, Beyoncé & André 3000, and HOVA and Kanye West's semi-recent single No Church in the Wild!
We can't wait to hear the rest!!!
The Great Gatsby hits theaters on May 10.
And pure, 100% unfiltered Lana Del Rey PERFECTION!
We couldn't ask for more from the breathy, baby doll singing sensation, whose new single for The Great Gatsby soundtrack, Young & Beautiful, dropped today in full, and has completely taken over our ear holes with its dark, epic and also incredibly vulnerable melodies!
But enough from us!
This is one track you're DEFINITELY going to have to hear for yourselves!
Give it a listen (below)!
It's like Instagram made a movie, LOLz!!
Saturated in sex, sepia, and her patented smoky voice, Lana Del Rey's latest music video is absolutely marvelous!
Covering Nancy Sinatra's 1967 hit Summer Wine, Lana brings in real life boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill to help her with the fabulous duet!!
Ch-ch-check out their adorably cozy video about strawberries, cherries, and other delicious stuffz (above)!
Aww! Their real life chemistry is so palpable you can taste it!
Between this new track and Lana's excellent addition to The Great Gatsby's soundtrack, we think our girlie is destined for a very productive spring!!
